    L'accueil était agréable et le lieu est magnifique puisqu'il donne une vue sur MANHATTAN. Quant au repas nous nous sommes régalés.

    We really appreciated the elevator door operator on the ground floor. The place is very nice, but the service was not well organized and we had two different people take our orders and then we got the wrong things served to us. The view is worth it though!
